    Default Bob and/or Backstrom Tuesday night? (Rep)

    I have a good start. Rask got me the W with 40 saves and .952 sv%.

    My opponent hasn't started any goalies yet but he has miller @ Wpg on Tuesday.

    I need to maintain my good start.
    I have Bob vs SJ and backstrom vs CHI
    Both are playing at home. Backstrom just came off a shutout but Chicago is really good so I'm thinking of sitting backstrom. Bob is really good at home but SJ has been heating up of late. Undecided if I should start him or not.

    With my good start from rask and him having miller @wpg, should I start bob and backstrom? Just bob or backstrom? Or neither? I'm thinking maybe only bob but can't decide. Thanks for the help

    If I had to choose between either it would be Bob for sure.....but I'd still be intrigued to see who they all play this week, including Rask. Might as well show us his matchups too....everything matters in the playoffs

    Rask @NJ, NYI (B2B), @CAR
    Bob SJ, STL, @MIN (B2B)
    Backstrom CHI, STL, CBJ

    Rask will probably get 2 more starts and I think both starts are solid starts.
    Backstrom would probably be solid starts against CBJ and maybe STL
    Bob I'm not sure. I can always drop Bob for Elliot or Mike Smith..?

    Elliot has pretty tough matchups but Smith is @EDM and @CGY

    I only get 2 waiver claims a week, not sure if it is worth it..

    It's still early in the week so I would start both. I know that L/GA cancels out SA/SV (relatively speaking) but really who knows how they'll perform so if you pick the wrong matchup then you could get burned. Others may disagree but I'd rather roll with who I have and then consider matchups later in the week. I'd rather get burned by playing them instead of on my bench.

    By the way, I really hate categories that reward you for sitting your goalies (L/GA). I find the ratio ones are good enough to ensure you are not just plugging in any goalie at any time, but playing should be given precedence over not playing IMO.

    I agree, the guy I'm playing this week starts and sits his goalies according to matchup though so I can be a bit picky. I can somewhat justify starting bob but finding it hard to do so with backstrom.
